NFL And NFL Players Host Series of Community Events on Oahu in Celebration of Pro Bowl

EVENTS INCLUDE FOURTH ANNUAL “NFL PLAY 60 COMMUNITY BLITZ” ON JANUARY 24

In celebration of the 2013 Pro Bowl, the NFL will host a series of community events throughout Oahu in the days leading up to the game. From tree plantings to fundraisers to the fourth annual “NFL PLAY 60 Community Blitz,” the events will enable the NFL and its players to give back to the Oahu community and thank them for sharing the spirit of Aloha.

During the Blitz, launched in partnership with the NFLPA, Pro Bowl players, NFL representatives and local volunteers will take part in service projects across Oahu on Thursday, January 24. The projects are designed to help local children stay healthy and active as part of NFL PLAY 60, the league’s campaign to fight childhood obesity, as well as to show support for our nation’s military, with events occurring on military bases around the Island.

During Blitz activities on Thursday, January 24, NFL players and volunteers will take part in a wounded warrior meet and greet and other events at Schofield Army Barracks, made possible by USAA, the NFL’s official military appreciation sponsor.  Additionally, the NFL will partner with United Way to build a healthy food garden; host a Punt, Pass & Kick event with athletes from the Special Olympics of Hawaii and will lead NFL PLAY 60 Youth Football Festivals and cheer clinics.
